About our dowel pins

For the production of our dowel pins we use a particularly high-quality material. Z-101 ceramic is a zirconia that features a specially developed casting process for extreme flexural strength and high hardness.

These dowel pins are extremely resistant to abrasion and thus achieve significantly longer service life than metallic dowel pins or cylindrical pins - even under heavy mechanical load. The high impact resistance means that the pins can even be mounted with a hammer if required.

In automation technology, they are used for positive positioning, for example, gripper jaws and quick coupling elements, and as maintenance-free bearing axes of pivot levers, rollers and gears.

As an extension of the previous product range, DOCERAM offers pull dowel pins in addition to the standard ones.
